Himebaugh Legacy Circle

Be recognized for shaping tomorrow today by planning an after-lifetime gift to us.

The Himebaughs

Donald & Violet Himebaugh

Donald & Violet Himebaugh

Donald and Violet Himebaugh loved the Fox Valley. The couple – he an accountant, she a Spanish teacher – delighted in watching eagles soar over the Fox River from their modest home. The Himebaughs made the entire Fox Valley their heirs upon their deaths in 2004 by making a bequest of $16 million to the Community Foundation to use for whatever community needs arise.  Under the care of the Community Foundation, the Himebaughs’ loving legacy will forever shape the community they valued so dearly.

To honor their tremendous gift to the community, the Himebaugh Legacy Circle was created to recognize people who — in the same spirit of giving as the Himebaughs — plan gifts to be made after their lifetimes.

It doesn’t matter what the amount of the gift is or whether you make a gift through your will or trust, an insurance policy, retirement account or other estate planning tool. To join the Legacy Circle, Click on the button to complete our membership form or call our office at 920-830-1290. We can also provide you with bequest language to give to your attorney.
